We're getting ready to start the closed beta period for our OAuth
support. If you'd like to participate in this beta, please email with the Twitter username that you'd like to be
associated with your applications.

In the closed beta period, participants will be able to create and
manage an unlimited number of OAuth applications. Any user will able
to access these applications, but only participants will be able to
create them. More documentation forthcoming.

We've had an overwhelming response, and I'm now considering the
application for private beta participation closed unless you have a
released, widely-used Twitter application (in which case I may have
already put you on the list).

If you made the private beta, I emailed you back. If you didn't, hang
tight: we'll try to keep the private beta period as short as possible.
Once it's over, we'll have a public beta during which anyone can
create and manage OAuth applications.

During the entire beta period, public and private, please only
encourage your most technical users to try OAuth out. The beta period
is, as if it needed to be said, NOT a final release, and should be
treated with caution.

Thanks for your enthusiasm! We'll email out next steps soon.

Hi Alex,
I will be integrating twitter with our search results. User can submit any media (e.g website, images, video etc.). Then user can add comments to any result and these comment will be posted to twitter automatically. Therefore I want user to provide their password and I will use these password to post to twitters. I would really appreciate, if you add us in your test for
OAuth integration.

I would recomend emailing him at However your idea
sounds pretty awesome though.
I'm working on site that is a social profile, and connects all of the
social sites in one easy place. It's pretty intriguing! I can't wait
to start using OAuth.
